A brief cross-over

This blog is all about football. Green Bay Packers football, to be precise. I know, it's redundant. Because Green Bay Packers football is the only kind of football.

But, on occasion, something arises in another part of the sports universe that demands our attention. At least for a moment. In this case, that's until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time Tuesday. We speak of the Internet vote now underway to decide the fate of the home run ball by that Barry guy who broke Hank Aaron's record.

Just go here, or check out the banner down in the right hand column (where there are also some charitable causes worthy of your consideration, by the way...a-hem). You can vote to (a) have it go to the Baseball Hall of Fame, (b) have it branded with an asterisk and then given to the BHoF, or (c) have it launched into orbit never to return.

Now, having actually seen Mr. Aaron play in person both as a Milwaukee Brave and Milwaukee Brewer, and being a lifetime fan of our space program...well, I don't want to exert any undue influence on your vote...

So far, nearly 10 million votes have been cast. You may wish to do as they do in Chicago: vote early and vote often.

We will now return to our regularly scheduled programming...
